Now that President Bush's choice is in for Supreme Court Justice, Wisconsin's senators say they are highly anticipating the confirmation process.

Federal Appeals Court Judge John Roberts Jr. is the President's pick to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.

Senator Herb Kohl says he's forming a bipartisan task force of legal experts and community leaders to advise him on Roberts. Meantime, Senator Russ Feingold says he looks forward to questioning him at the confirmation hearings, which are expected to begin in September.
